Head trauma and Fibromyalgia frequently go hand in hand.  15 years ago after a severe fall Lynn began developing Fibromyalgia type pains throughout her body, allergies, headaches and more.  By realigning the Atlas with Upper Cervical Care, Lynn is getting her life back…here is her amazing story…

“I came into Dr. Davis’ office with Fibromyalgia pain, allergies, low back pain and headaches.  After my very first visit I found that the congestion in my sinuses was cleared.  I could breath so much deeper.  After 15+ years of taking allergy medication, I no longer need them!! 

 I am sleeping sounder and I don’t have muscle spasms in my back anymore!

I have more energy to exercise.  I have been able to garden and do yard work without back pain!  It used to take a week to recover from 2 hours of gardening!

 Dr. Davis truly cares about his patients well being.  He explains everything and takes his time with you.  The relaxed, calm and caring atmosphere is wonderful!  And Linde’s smile is such a blessing.

 I got my life back!

 I love to serve the Lord and now I can do it without the pain!”

Anxiety is a condition that effects millions of Americans.  Many hormones that are released from the brain stem area can be an underlying factor.  Without proper neurology and physiology from the brain to the body many people suffer needlessly.  Here is one such story from our office of a woman who is getting her life back because of God’s grace and Upper Cervical Care…

“When I first came to see Dr. Davis I was scared of life due to my Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), constant panic attacks, and not being able to sleep.  I had to go on medication for my anxiety and to sleep.  I was having difficulty relaxing and could not take care of myself or my husband and three kids.

 Since I started care here I started sleeping better and slowly getting my energy back, I am definitely able to take better care of myself again and I am able to take care of my family as well.  I was even afraid to drive before and now I can again!  I am able to relax and take those nice walks with my husband and kids.  I can watch my kids play sports and go in to a store without feeling like something is going to happen.  I can even go on dates with my husband and enjoy myself.  And no more medication to sleep!

 I would encourage anyone that they have nothing to lose and God is always with you.  Just take it one step at a time.

 The relaxation that I feel after the adjustment is wonderful and once I leave the office I know that everything is going to be okay.”

University of Chicago Medical Center study links NUCCA care with reduction of blood pressure.

Researchers at the Hypertension Center at the University of Chicago Medical Center are reporting stunning reductions in the blood pressure of patients afflicted with hypertension following simple and painless chiropractic care.

 In the study – published in the March 2, 2007 issue of The Journal of Human Hypertension and featured on WebMD, Good Morning America and other sources – 50 patients with hypertension were divided into two groups of 25 each.  One group of 25 received a NUCCA spinal correction to the atlas vertebra (uppermost bone in the neck).  This vertebra holds up the head and only relies on soft tissue to maintain alignment.  Misalignment, also known as subluxation, usually goes undiagnosed and causes no pain or discomfort. The other group of 25 received a similar procedure but with no adjustment being given. Researchers called this procedure the “sham adjustment.” Since the type of adjustment given was very light force, the patients involved in this study did not know if they were receiving the real or sham adjustments.

After 8 weeks of care, the 25 people in the group receiving the real chiropractic adjustments all showed a significant reduction in blood pressure compared to the group that received the sham adjustment. Those patients who got the real adjustment showed an average of 14 mm Hg greater drop in systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure count), and an average of 8 mm Hg greater drop in diastolic blood pressure (the bottom blood pressure number) over those who got the fake or sham adjustment.

X-rays confirmed that the chiropractic adjustments actually changed the position of the atlas vertebra among those in the study group.  The study leader reported that the procedure had the effect of not one, but two blood pressure medications given in combination.  And, his team reported no side effects whatsoever from the adjustment.

 Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is widespread among adults in the United States. And, if uncontrolled, it can lead to heart and kidney failure or a stroke. According to the American Heart Association, nearly one in three adults suffers from hypertension. However, many are unaware that they are afflicted – making high blood pressure the ‘silent killer.’ This study offers so much hope.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic care is a maintenance program for the nervous system. If the nervous system is free of stress and operating at peak efficiency, it can lead the body to do incredible things. This study begs for further research. While man struggles to create new and better technologies on a daily basis, we continue to find that the human body is the greatest technology on today’s market – let’s take good care of it.

Many of our patients here in San Diego County love to surf.  Unfortunately, surfing can be very traumatic on the body.  Especially when you fall!  This patient from our office had a surfing accident where the board actually broke over his head!  Ouch!!!  Here is his story….”I had a horrible surfing accident about 6 years ago that caused my neck to be in chronic pain ever since and it left me with limited rotation in my neck and it would pop and crack all the time.  Since then I have been unable to surf!  I had visited many chiropractors and when I was referred to Dr. Davis I had no higher expectations other than minor temporary relief.

Since my care began I have had a great increase in my neck rotation and my neck and back feel great and there is much less popping and cracking going on in my neck.  I am ready to go back out in the water after a very long time…mind you carefully!

I would encourage people that suffer pain in their necks to be open to the opportunity of this form of care…one that has unexpected results of improvement and wellness!  I am very impressed at the improvement of my condition and look forward to the future results with my health.

I have really enjoyed the structure of the care plan.  Dr. Davis has this down to a science and Linde has been a professional wonder!”                                 Ray W.                                         Oceanside CA
